Emollients are widely used in personal care products to make the skin soft and supple and provide a
silky skin feel. The dicarprylyl ether in our antiperspirant stick helps with a smooth dry feeling
The main alternatives used in antiperspirant products are silicones (liquid siloxanes and
particularly volatile polyorganosiloxanes, e.g. cyclopentaxiloxane, cyclohexasiloxane, cyclomethicones,
dimethicone and derivatives). We do not use silicones in any of our products due to the synthetic nature of
the compounds and environmental and safety concerns. There are a number of other emollients used in
antiperspirants, like C12 15 alkyl benzoate, polyethylene glycol (PEG)-derivatives and some esters. We cannot
use most of these ingredients because they are highly processed chemicals.
The use of dicaprylyl ether in an antiperspirant stick is considered to be safe.
